Casey Mize turns 22 tomorrow, but he’s already thrown a no-hitter. Or rather, make that two. Last night Mize made his double-A debut with the Erie SeaWolves, pitching a no-hitter. He pitched his first no-hitter last year as a junior at Auburn University.
It was the second no-hitter in a week for the SeaWolves.
On April 24, Alex Faedo pitched seven no-hit innings and Drew Carlton pitched two no-hit innings against the Bowie Baysox. (Check out the final out below.) Then, yesterday, Mize pitched all nine innings against the Altoona Curve, striking out seven and walking one batter.
What’s even more amazing is that Mize only signed with the Tigers last June and started this year with the Lakeland Flying Tigers. He made four starts with Lakeland before being promoted to Erie, making his debut with Erie last night.
Congratulations, SeaWolves, and happy birthday, Casey!
